a screen play. 500 pages long. i gave it to stephen. stephen is always surprising. after he read the first 150 pages, he said, i love this. i'll read the rest of it, but this is a movie. i thought, that's great to hear, but you can't make -- it's the first movie about abraham lincoln in 72 years except for the vampire killer thing. you can't make the fist movie about lincoln about the passage of the 13th amendment. hardly anybody knows how that happened. stephen just kept coming back to that saying, that's the exciting thing. he said when he first read it, he said, i knew that the amendment passed, but i sat there wondering if it was going to pass when i was watching the vote. >> he is clearly one of the most methologized figures in all of history. here you and stephen spielberg come trying to put flesh and blood back into this icon. was there a moment when you suddenly saw into the character, saw what you were looking at to make the man come alive? >> yeah, there were a couple. one was a letter that seward wrote to his wife fanny. >> secretary of state, lincoln's chief adviser. >> and chi

[speaker not understood]. >> stephen taylor, [speaker not understood]. >>> good evening. my name is stephen tabor. central task force, i'm also the transportation chair for russian hill neighbors. you'll be hearing from russian hill neighbor president so i will confine my remarks to spur. spur has supported this project vigorously since its inception. we have supported the four corridors plan which is based on this project, encompasses two of the four corridors. our major criticism against this project that we have had for some time is it doesn't go far enough. it needs to be extended so that it encompasses the entire north beach corridor. and our principal aim is to make sure that whatever happens does not preclude the extension. we are working very closely with mta and others to begin the study for the extension. we strongly support option number 4, which by the way, contrary to what the previous speaker said, was overwhelmingly supported at the meeting, citizens meeting on the 19th. only a small number of people supported option 2. most of the people there als
. [laughter] >> david souter and stephen breyer are frequently together. not too long ago, justice david souter was driving from here to new hampshire. and he stopped a little restaurant to get something to eat. a couple came up to him, and the guy said, i know you, you were on the supreme court. he said you are stephen breyer, right? and he didn't want to embarrass him in front of his wife and he said yes, i am. and they chatted for a little while. then the guy asked him a question that david souter wasn't ready for. >> the characters in my story or a backdrop of what would happen if you had to replace the majority of the court. my favorite is a nominating harold carswell. he was considered one of the highest caliber nominee for this report. he was panned in the press as being a mediocre lawyer and a mediocre presidents. one of his senate handlers trying to help said something to the effect of, you know, there's lots of mediocre lawyers and judges and people out there. don't they deserve representation, to? and so that was the end of his chances to become a justice. >> i think that is o

at the ground up. all the way up. [inaudible] let me talk about stephen's case, which he brought in the federal district court in new jersey. this was a man whose wife was a math teacher in high school. she had a healthy pregnancy. she remained in the classroom until the ninth month she went to the hospital to give birth, and the doctor came out and said, you have a healthy baby boy, but your wife died from an embolism. he was determined that he would not work full-time until the child was in school full-time. he would earn a minimum he could make, and combined with social security benefits, make a living for himself and his infant son. we went to the social security office. they said we are very sorry, but these are mothers benefits. they are not available. they are available to widowed mothers, but not widowed fathers. i came to know about stephen's case when he wrote a letter to the editor, and he said i've been hearing a lot of talk about women's this. this is what happened to me. how does that fit in? tell my story to gloria steinem. so at the time i was teaching at rutgers, the state univ
friend, stephen said. pulling aside the curtain, he saw the rain had stopped. it was a godsend. northeast of san francisco, four fifths of san francisco lay underwater. allowing passengers to enter their second city story hotel room by window. the 50 inches of icy wind and shotgun blast of black hail that had pummeled san francisco all winter had not misspelled the dreams of its citizens. they talked. heads filled with nightmares of what would happen when the downpour ended. they listen to the faint cracking of things and they watched the watch the clear glass of their lamp chimneys black and instead of being warm. they feared the worst. they dreaded the high winds off the bay nor the inclination to buy any water, maybe that san francisco would burn that would come after winter, six weeks without rain. san francisco springs would be much different, but the results would be the same. from his window, broderick made at the end of the road where father mounted and heat. these abandoned vessels had transported hundreds of thousands who had made the thousand ships orphaned. the callous callous

[speaker not understood] on this. it's a community-based effort. from the bricks and mortar side it is really as we said mapping out the assets in term of affordable housing businesses. the elements that are in south of market that we really need to understand as we strategize and look at the analysis of the threats and strengths of the area. the other important part of this
, the weather machine, for hosting my son thompson's class this morning from st. stephens of hungary. look how cute they are the budding meteorologist. mine is the one pushing in front. that's him, oh, boy. thank you, janice. for my official favorite part of the show. spare change. we're joined by two of the best. fox news little analyst, arthur aidala and mercedes cohen. thanks to you both. you can't make this up. australia's prime minister made an alarming announcement last night via youtube. check it out. >> it turns out that the mayan calendar was true. while australia's best and brightest at the csi have not been able to confirm this i'm confident in triple joe's prediction that the world is about to end. whether the final blow cops from flesh-eating zombies, demonic hill beasts or from the tribes, if you know one thing about me it is this. i will always fight for you to the very end and at least this means i won't have to do q&a again. melissa: all right. goes on to talk about, she says, i mean does it all with a straight face. isn't great. >> was she hitting a bong before making comment
for chris stephens and for the united states, their great -- gratitude for our country provide, i think, a measure of hope. that demonstration of afiction for america and for our envoy who gave his life for those people summed up exactly why we must not look inwards and walk away. finally, let me just say that what happened in benghazi really can't be seen in isolation. there's a truth about diplomacy and foreign service that needs to be processed through the committee and the congress and the country as we examine the events of men ghazi. we have an expeditionary diplomatic corps, and they do face very real risks every day, day in and day out. bad things have happened before, and bad things will happen again, unfortunately, in the future. there will always be a tension between the diplomatic imperative to get outside the wire and the security standards that require our diplomats to work behind high walls and full-body searches. we do not want to conner is tee that wire america off from the world. our challenge is to strike a balance between the necessity of the mission, available resou
were talking about stephen crane and conrad. the writers' room which can be one of the great places of creativity in america, a writers' room on a good show. listen. we were all at various stages of having dropped out english departments one way or another. that's how you get to los angeles. the subject of dickens was always coming up. we were writing about cities, writing about crimes, writing about crops. dickens was one of the first people to notice how interesting a policeman is standing between the legitimate and the ill lee might jat in a city. the conversation turned off as a popular writer, we're writing for television. so was he. when he talk about the fact that people... when simon talked about the fact that the weekly part would be read allowed to others in the family living room by dad it resembles nothing so much as an american family gathered around a character set with undischarged energy. the great thing is that you then have to master it. unlike shakespea. must allow the character to pen great into your soul as it were. with dickens you have to hang to mrs. gamp if
hikes and spending cuts kick in, is a compromise even possible? stephen hayes joins us. senior writer, "the weekly standard." is it possible? >> hey, gregg. yeah, look, i think it's possible. i thought all along for more than a month we were likely to see some last minute, slap dash kind of unsatisfying deal thrown to won't actually do anything to solve the long-term problems but get politicians out of the bind. gregg: like what? >> like something that extends the bush tax rates for those making $250,000 in the last, maybe amt patch, but won't deal with entitlement spending won't deal with long term issues we have to deal with as a country if we're actually serious about changing the trajectory of our debt. gregg: i'll sure you saw john barosso who said the president is eager to go over the cliff. he wants to go over the cliff. what do you think? >> well i think there are political incentives for the president to do just that. if you think about the long-term political liabilities of the democratic party, they have been basically on taxes and national security. and if the president go
